2014 running out, and all we can look forward to is the new year – awaiting what new artists, albums, and tracks will emerge. Well, we’ve discovered a gem to keep your ear on. We present to you Foreign & Domestic, a mysterious new project driven by the G House and Ghetto-tech movements. We can’t say much about their identity, but we can tell you they are ready for 2015 with a barrage of new music – 9 originals and 4 remixes right off the bat. If the most anthemic of hip hop and the deeper depths of bass house were locked in a room, the resulting product would be this project. Their December mini mix showcases all 13 tracks, and you can download the Tiga ‘Bugatti’ and Diplo/Alvaro ‘6th Gear’ remixes here too! Grab em below, and watch out for Foreign & Domestic as the new year unfolds…

TheFatRat is no stranger to these parts and it was only natural to feature him in a proper GDD™ Spotlight. We have his brand new logo (pictured above) and an awesome 1-hour mix, which he was so kind to do for us, that contains the premiere of the full FatRat remix of Martin Solveig’s “The Night Out,” and plenty of other excellent tracks ranging from disco to dubstep (tracklist after the jump).
Also, the blogosphere has been well acquainted with his music and some brief information about him, but we have an in-depth interview that discusses reasons behind his anonymity, his production tools, application of the Karma Sutra, something that has made the biggest impact on his life today, and much much more. Not only are we giving you an exclusive inside look into the personality of TheFatRat & a mix for your listening pleasure, but we also have him booked for his live world premiere at our VS party in Santa Monica on Thursday (4/5). If you are in the LA area, you best be there. Now, head after the jump for the interview, check out the mix, and download it for free by clicking the “Buy” button on the Soundcloud player!
Michael Ullman and Julien Benichou, or Bastille, have been featured numerous times here on GDD™ since our humble origins in 2008, so as their careers have developed and their catalog of productions and remixes increased, I felt it necessary to get in touch with the boys and hear about what they’ve been up to firsthand. As I found out, Julien and Michael have been busy DJing around the country while balancing college, and to top it off, they’ve just come out with a new single, ‘One Night Love Affair,’ that we might just hear Alain and Armand playing out in the near future.
